- "My assistants and I all get along great at work. If someone starts singing a song, we all start clapping along. If someone says they want to see a certain movie, we try to finish up early on the last day of production work and go see it together. Or if someone wants to lose seven pounds, we all diet together. I think having the right assistants is the secret behind a successful long-running series. I'm always so grateful for their help."

- —Viz description
After Amei Hanawa tags along on the double date, she and Haruto Kaguragi have a moment alone together. He agrees to treat her "the same as everyone else." Everyone, sans Oto Edogawa, then head off to Issa Narumiya's house for a welcoming party for Amei. Haruto disappears partway through. Outside Oto's house, he calls her and asks her to to come to his house. At Haruto's house, he explains his past with Amei to Oto. He reveals that Amei was his confidante until middle school, when he stopped receiving emails from her. Oto wonders whether he and Amei would still be together if the emails had not stopped. Haruto quickly interrupts her, declaring "I'll always pick you in the end." Afterwards, he walks Oto home. Amei watches them from behind a tree.
Amei returns home and begs her mother to give her Haruto's emails, the ones he sent during middle school. The next day, she starts school at Eitoku Academy. Haruto receives a text from Oto about her father wanting to meet him. Amei quietly leaves, while the Correct 5 gives him advice. She breaks down into tears in the hallway, going over the emails in her mind. That weekend, Haruto is heading over to Oto's place to meet her parents, when he spots Amei chasing after his car. She tells him about reading the emails and confesses "I can't forget you, Haruto." Amei then collapses. Later, Haruto calls Oto to tell her about taking Amei to the hospital. He is held up for several hours. Oto's parents become discouraged, but she insists that Haruto will arrive soon.
When Haruto arrives hours late, Oto's father takes him outside where he have a chat. He tells him a story of a young Oto, calling her "the kind of girl who would give up something precious to someone else." Haruto heads home, wondering why nothing can go "smoothly." There he finds Amei waiting for him. He attempts to reject her gently, but she embraces him. Haruto then notices Oto watching. Amei refuses to let go at first. Haruto slowly tells her how important she was to him when they were young. Oto has left in the meantime, so Haruto walks Amei home. There her mother begs Haruto to be with her daughter. Refusing, he still assures her that Amei's friends will support her from now on. Meanwhile, Oto receives a video from Hitoshi Konoe in Los Angeles.
Haruto becomes anxious about what Oto's father said, when she does not show up at school. Kaito Taira tells him to just go see her. Haruto, however, feels he has "done right by [her]" in the situation. He wants to wait for her to get in contact with him. Meanwhile, Oto arrives in Los Angeles, where she meets Konoe and Tenma Hase. There she is caught on camera, which Haruto sees on TV in Japan. Oto is happy to see Tenma and Konoe again, but realizes that she misses Haruto. Shortly, Tenma gets a call about her "suspicious person" who turns out to be Haruto. Tenma and Konoe leave the couple alone. Haruto and Oto are able to clear up everything. He then asks her where she is staying and whether she wants to stay with him instead.
